No Face Mask Ruined our Dinner:
Very good meal with good drinks selection. Waitress pleasant but evening spoilt as face mask was worn hanging under chin. Not the correct way to treat and serve customers. This spoilt the occasion.
Not one staff person in this restaurant is wearing a mask!! Avoid this restaurant; hygiene not good-- flies were buzzing, the wine and food were terrible for the price, it is NOT the Vincent Coughlan pub, but the "Le Petite Bistro". Their card reader rejected...both of our cards 5 times even tho we had used them hours earlier; forced to run out in the rain for blocks to get cash when they insisted it WASN'T their Card reader! and in the end it was. Not really a French Restaurant or SAFE restaurant as you would think.More

After booking with us on the 8 of September 2020, we did look after you and your husband with the upmost care as we provide to all customers. You had, on the spot a lot of occasion to discuss your issues with a...More
this restaurant is where vincent coughlans was.
given our pandemic-related consciousness, the first thing we noticed going in here was that the staff are not wearing any face coverings. "there's plenty of space" says the server, from about two feet away.
maybe, its OK, but...its not whats recommended.
but we stayed, and were rewarded with some very fine food indeed.
its a seafood restaurant, so we all went with the fish.
and it was very good indeed.
our starters, prawns, calamari, fishcakes are fairly standard menu items, its true, and thats fine when they're this good.
mains, lobster, monkfish and sea-bream.all really good, particularly the monkfish, served with mussels and chorizo. I really enjoyed this meal.
there were two servers, and they were excellent. managed a busy evening, efficiently and with a bit of humour. fair play.
one question. who's idea was it to water down the sanitiser in the restroom? it was practically water, and not an accident, since it was this way in both restrooms. pity that!
i know that we have to get on with our lives, but that'll work a whole lot better if we respect the safety requirementsMore
Went here last night with my family and honestly it was the best meal we have ever had out.
I went for fish cakes and shared prawns for a starter and I have never tasted anything like it. Everyone in the group thought the starters...were excellent.
I had the seabass for mains and it may not be everyone taste in the since they give you the whole fish, but the taste was again excellent.
For dessert we ended up getting almost all the deserts that they had on offer and we shared them. We all agreed again that they were superb.
Regarding the covid-19. We felt very comfortable, tables were well distanced. And everything was spotless.More
It’s called a speciality seafood restaurant and we were expecting fresh fish as advertised.. we had calamari, prawns and crab cakes and all were very poor. Definitely frozen, same garnish side salad on each plate and shop mayonnaise in a little tub. There is no...“chef” in this restaurant.. deep fat frier.. and no care or consideration for cooking.
It’s called “le petit bistro” so you can avoid it at all costsMore
The restaurant now calls itself Le Petit Bistrot. The food was really excellent. We had the seafood chowder, the butterfly seabass and the chocolate Guiness mouse. Each dish was great. Perfectly prepared, visually attractive with very well balanced flavours. The place had a good atmosphere....We know it is difficult, but more effort should be made to protect everyone against Covid19. The staff wore no masks and we experienced a diner at an adjacent table being allowed (served) to move a chair to add to the table so that he was sitting less than 1m away from us.More
